Hi All,

Finally, the end of the odyssey ( :cheesy: ).  A tank battle, 1,500pts of armoured mayhem. I would love your force to be historical but if it isn't...meh.  However, there may be a bonus for some attempt at a historical force.

Force composition is literally 1,500pts. Period. Feel free to include as much infantry/artillery as you want but be warned, there will be no objectives. You may want infantry/artillery to attempt to kill armour cheaply. That's fine & will score heavily.

The mission will be just to destroy as many units of the opposition as possible. No vehicles are set up on the table at the start but all infantry/artillery units can set up up to 12" from your own table edge & may set up hidden. The first wave can consist of as many vehicles as you wish & there is no morale test in the first wave but there will be for any units coming in from reserve from turn 2 onwards.

You can choose when you bring units on at anytime, there are no minimums (or maximums) to the number of units in the first wave & outflank is allowed with the usual rules. Scoring will be as follows;

Destroy 10+ Armoured vehicle - 5pts

Destroy 9+ Armoured vehicle - 4pts

Destroy 8+ Armoured vehicle - 3pts

Destroy 7+ Armoured vehicle - 2pts

Destroy 6+ Armoured vehicle - 1pts

Destroy non-vehicle unit - 1pts

Destroy a vehicle with an infantry unit - 5pts

Destroy a vehicle with an artillery unit - 3pts

If you take an infantry/artillery unit it must have transport or a tow.

If you don't have 1,500pts of tanks but wish to play, let me know & I can provide a force for someone. If others are able to do the same please let us know.

Looking forward to seeing anyone & everyone who wishes to participate & join in the killing frenzy. Have at it.

Do we have to stick with the army being  used so far? I don't have enough armour for western desert but could do NW Europe brits.

I've never used them...let me look up the rules.

I can lend you some 'lend lease' tanks. Just like the real thing!!!

I've got four M3 Stuarts you can use if that helps?

I have had a skim through it & I can't see anything relevant that wasn't already in the previous one. Please let me know if you've spotted something.

Your choice. This is going to be very free & open. Start deployed, in reserve in outflank...up to you.
Are you going to be there Monday?
